Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - YOUR LETTERS - KIM MAD­DEN

Sweet talk­ing

There is so much con­flict­ing nu­tri­tion and health ad­vice these days that it’s all a bit over­whelm­ing. Low fat is good, then it’s bad; but­ter is in, but not too much; don’t drink too much al­co­hol, but red wine can be good for you… It’s hard to know what to make of all the stud­ies and the ad­vice. I have re­cently cut out sugar from my diet so I was re­ally in­ter­ested to see the story on your health pages, “The truth about sugar al­ter­na­tives”. I was sur­prised to read that agave syrup, which is in a lot of raw-food “health­ier” recipes, ac­tu­ally has more kilo­joules than ta­ble sugar. Thank you for the guide to what each sugar al­ter­na­tive is – I have cut it out to re­fer to when I’m re­search­ing recipes and writ­ing my shop­ping list!
